THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS
Collaborating, working together as one to ensure our students have the best education.
Somersfield is governed by a Board that represents the Montessori Trust. Board members are appointed and serve a limited term. There are typically between ten and fourteen Board members each of whom brings a particular area of expertise to the governance of the school. The Board’s role is to determine school policy, ensure the financial viability of the school and to appoint and evaluate the school Principal. There are three standing committees which meet regularly in addition to full Board meetings. The committees are Governance, Finance, and Development. The Board meets seven times each year and holds an annual retreat to review policy, finances, and development progress.
“The objective of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.” – Robert Maynard Hutchins
It gives me great pleasure to be a part of Somersfield Academy, a school that is dedicated to ensuring our students are lifelong learners, critical thinker s and risk-takers.
At Somersfield Academy, we are determined to do our best to create the opportunity for every child to develop their full potential. We are a dynamic, diverse and different (based on its curriculum and programmes) school that has become the school of choice for many in Bermuda. Our Head of School, administrators, teachers and support staff are ready and willing to go the extra mile to help our students and your children to be the best they can be and encourage them always to give back to our special and unique community on this Island.
The Board of Somersfield Academy works closely with our Head of School to provide the best education possible for our students. The Board determines school policies and we ensure the financial viability of the school. We have a very strong parent body, engaged alumni and friends of Somersfield Academy who continuously offer their services in various ways to support our school and we are thankful.
It is with pride that Somersfield Academy, although young, can boast that we have graduates who have and are attending some of the best universities in the world and becoming productive and successful citizens in Bermuda and elsewhere.
We are a sharing and caring school and look forward to providing you with even more information about our school through our new and improved website.
